At A Priori, we value greatness and are committed to procuring only the best of the specialty foods world, with a penchant for Old World style and taste.
A Priori was founded by food lovers who are not merely connoisseurs, but nationally and internationally recognized experts in the areas of cheese, chocolate, salumi & charcuterie, vinegar, oil, and much more.
To set ourselves apart, we make our buying decisions based strictly on rigorous blind tasting sessions. This is especially true when it comes to chocolate. Our passionate tasting team excels when it comes to determining origins, characteristics and nuances of cacao.
Despite our focus on excellence, A Priori tasting experts are incredibly approachable and adept at finding value, and our products are rarely the most expensive option.
Amedei is the pinnacle of classic European treatment of cacao beans: darker roast than most American artisans, cocoa butter, and vanilla. Regardless of which bar, Amedei's chocolate brings to mind aromas of perfumed woods, fine tobaccos, and jam. For us, Amedei is the desert island chocolate. Maybe not the most dramatic-tasting chocolate, but if you could only have one for the rest of your life, the only decision would be which Amedei bar to pick.
